5:00 pm
the same, business leaders from this incredible city. today on this medical campus, it's three outpatient facilities established here. wonderful collaboration with our leaders. i want to acknowledge again the leadership that was put here by mark and lynn benny hoff by establishing the children's hospital, not just here but they made that similar commitment to oakland health care. it has no boundaries. it shouldn't just happen in mission bay. it has to happen for the entire region. i'm happy to see this happening in our mission bay. i think not only great leaders, but they lead with commitment to improve people's lives and their health. for a children's hospital in a most modern facility here that is
5:01 pm
ultimately the gold rush attraction. to have gerson and barbara baker cancer center here. yet again another demonstration of people who are not only in the business community, but have matched up what they truly believe in, in helping improve people's lives. cancer has yet to be solved, but i know somewhere in mission bay, some kid working in some laboratory now in addition to making the right chromosomes to make me taller in the future, they will solve the serious cancers of today. i want to acknowledge bob gers on and barbara for their help today and betty moore williams center hospital is a third part of this. a tribute to the needs of women and families will be
5:02 pm
right here. again, led by wonderful business leaders who also saw the need to have this happen. my good friend ron and ron and gail conaway to establishing the outpatient clinic, yes another great business leader who in many ways demonstrated along with the others their commitment to improving lives for everyone establishing this outpatient clinic. all in all the talent continues to attract more and more people. i want to give a big shout out to its entire foundation and & board of trustees and that all of you are helping us understand these unique relationships that have to happen if we are going to be a successful city. health care is our no. 1 job creator industry
5:03 pm
right now. it's the tremendous contribution to not only unemployment, but to the accelerating of so many other jobs, so many buildings. it will be a fantastic mission bay that will also have the tribute of having a new warriors reason -- arena not far from us and there is a youth and excitement happening in the city and all for mission bay that was very under utilized throughout the years but our imagination took over the people that drove it so well. now to have a chancellor that indicated a national discussion led in great part by uc to have this happen in our hometown here is an incredible story. it's a big thank you to this $1.5
5:04 pm
billion campus of enthusiasm, of innovation. this will be a big big reason why we are asking and inviting 400 mayor's this june to come to san francisco and look what we have and what we can demonstrate in this collaboration. i know phil forest and mark, you are going to be excited to introduce all of these mayor's to what all of the things that are happening here can be demonstrated across the entire country. i know these other mayor's are going to be asking a lot of great questions about how this happened. i'm going to be telling them, unless you have a city that is collaborative, unless you have investments from the private sector, unless you have businesses understanding what we are trying to do, uc couldn't do this alone, the city couldn't do this alone. it's the entire magic
5:05 pm
collaboration that exhibits the entire gold rush going on in our city. with that, if i may present to mark and to chancellor today has got to be uc medical center day in san francisco. [ applause ] >> thank you, mayor lee. as we were planning these facilities, we had lots of input, architects, others who built hospitals but we wanted to pay attention to the people who
5:06 pm
knew what a hospital is all about most personally. that was the patients and families who use it. i'm very pleased today to introduce sally mcdonald. she's a third generation city san san franciscan. sally was great to share her insights to make sure the facilities we built would serve families. please help me in welcoming ms. mcdonald. [ applause ] . >> thank you very much. i am very honored to be here representing the voice of families who will use these hospitals. ucsf has living to my voice and the voice of other family
5:07 pm
members throughout the several years it took to get these buildings designed and built. they listened to the concerns that families had about being able to stay in the room with the patients and now they can. they listened to concerns about a need for a private place for families to gather or to speak to doctors without the earshot of a patient and work them into the design. they listened to the needs of mom's like me or close family members of any patient to be part of the team and usually appreciated the input i gave. they understood that when a family member is in the hospital, time tops, -- stops, but the world continues and to find ways to assist families and keeping their world together while being there for the patient and they are providing resources for the families. something as simple as the use of a fax
5:08 pm
machine or washing machine can be a godsend. ucsf providedthat. unlessu you have a member of your family who needs this level of care you will understand how helpful they are for families. many in hospitals have many patients who spend weeks in a hospital and many coming from long distance to be near the familyas family support system. as my daughter who spent much of her life in the hospital. i spent many days in the hospital into all the hours of day and night. now with the new hospital it is a whole new world. i do want
5:09 pm
to publically thank ucsf for the wonderful care my daughter received throughout her whole life. maggie was a pioneer in a pioneer hospital. she was lucky enough to live longer because of this hospital. maggie's life was even longer and even better. thank you. [ applause ] >> thank you, sally. well, sunday is super bowl, but it is our super bowl here at ucsf as well. we will be moving close to 200 patients
5:10 pm
from our hospitals to this magnificent new facility here at mission bay. we are asking for our community support as there are going to be 40 ambulances. one leaving every 4 minutes from there to here. we are hoping for a minimum of disruption, but if there is any disruption we apologize to our community in advance. i want to thank in particular the san francisco police department greg suhr and san francisco fire department chief white for their help to execute this on sunday morning. before we wrap up, we've got a couple more things to do. i just want to mention some of the logistics. at the end of the prepared remarks here, we are going to have people who are involved with constructing the building. we are going to have, we have people who are experts
5:11 pm
in what will happen on the move on sunday. we have tours around the he technology and so feel free to take time to tour with any of the guest here. to close, we thought about having a ribbon cutting but it didn't seem true to san francisco style to have a ribbon cutting. so we thought about what we do with our cancer patients when they complete their cancer treatment. the tradition is to commemorate the beginning of a healthy new life following cancer care by ringing a bell. so what kind of bell did we need here inform -- for this special moment? we needed a new bell
5:12 pm
and thanks to the san francisco municipal authority we have a cable car bell being running. -- rung. we are going to ask a special person to ring the bell. he's a successful filmmaker. he's only 19 years old. he was diagnosed with carcinoma last june and recuperating from a successful surgery to save his leg. dr. rob has been his physician. [ applause ] and dr. goldsby has confidence that okshay will be the first
5:13 pm
cancer patient to complete his treatment here at mission bay. [ applause ] ok shay is very impressive successful filmmaker and completing his last round of treatment and heading to uc davis for school. we are very proud of you. i would like those here to please stand and ok shay, we would like you to ring the bell.
